Instrument and Final Report : RPL 2016 Strategic Planning Survey Questionnaire

 

As part of our renewed strategic planning initiative, the Rye Public Library Board of Trustees has undertaken a modest preliminary study to determine any changes from existing conditions that might be appropriate and desirable in order to better satisfy the needs and expectations for the delivery of enhanced public library services to the Rye community.

This Space Needs and Utilization Study will review the existing Rye Public Library (RPL) building, grounds and operations.   The results of this study are expected to be integrated into the update of the RPL Strategic Plan, the Town of Rye Master Plan, the Town of Rye Capital Improvements Plan, and the Rye Facilities Master Plan.  Public opinion and input will be collected and included in the Study and strategic planning processes.

A component of the Space Needs and Utilization Study was a town-wide survey mailer which reached every postal customer in Rye.  The survey instrument can be reviewed here.

A Final Report on our survey questionnaire results can be reviewed here.
